Conjoined twins Annabelle and Isabelle on their way home after successful separation surgery

A Co Antrim family has confirmed their conjoined twins are “finally coming home” after surgery in London to be successfully separated in September.

Born together in May to parents Hannah and Dan, nabelle and Isabelle Bateson were joined from chest to pelvis and shared a liver, bladder and intestine, common fused leg and leg each.

The family have shared regular updates about the twins’ journey on their social media account, and on Tuesday night confirmed the news everyone was hoping for.

Sharing a photo of Annabelle and Isabelle and mum Hannah, dad Dan wrote: “These three ladies are coming home.

“Sorry people for moving around this week but they’re finally coming home. We were hoping they would come home last week but it didn’t happen. But my flights are booked tomorrow to pick her up.”

The news was greeted with joy by hundreds of the family’s followers on social media, with the update being liked by more than 3,000 people.

A crowdfunding campaign set up for the family has also raised over £22,000 so far after the twins’ story captured the hearts of the public.

Their story also became widely known when the couple spoke to ITV’s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning after the twins were born in May.

Conjoined twins are extremely rare, occurring on average only once in 250,000 births.

It is estimated that about 70 percent of conjoined twins born are likely to be female.

Tragically, about 40 percent of all conjoined twins are stillborn. Conjoined twins Annabelle and Isabelle on their way home after successful separation surgery
